OWNER’S MANUAL
INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of this Dual Super Lead (DSL) amplifier from
Marshall Amplification.
The DSL provides the legendary Marshall tone, allowing you to express your distinct
playing style and attitude.
From clean to distorted overdrives, the DSL 1 is a versatile all valve amp that allows
you to easily dial in the sound you desire.
This DSL amplifier not only delivers the tone you expect from a Super Lead amplifier
it is also packed with an array of features such as an effects loop, power reduction
and studio quality digital reverb.
Your DSL has been specifically engineered to sound great at much lower volumes
than its larger counterparts. This makes the amp ideal for use at home or other quiet
environments.
We hope you enjoy your DSL amplifier.
- The Marshall Team
OVERVIEW
The DSL 1 Head and DSL 1 Combo feature the same functions. The combo is
equipped with an 8” Celestion Eight-15 speaker chosen for its ability to deliver
exceptional tone at lower volumes.
The DSL features two foot switchable channels: CLASSIC GAIN and ULTRA GAIN.
The CLASSIC GAIN channel delivers sparkling clean sounds through to the more
aggressive break-up of a Marshall JCM800 amplifier. The ULTRA GAIN channel
provides even more distortion and break-up for players looking for higher gain tone
from their amplifier.
Both channels share a passive three-band EQ, with BASS, MIDDLE and TREBLE
controls. The EQ section also features Tone Shift, which when activated reconfigures
the pre-amp mid frequencies making DSL ideal for contemporary metal tones,
especially when combined with higher gain settings.
The DSL 1 features professional quality digital REVERB and a series FX LOOP, giving
you rich valve tone at an ear-friendly volume.

WARNING! IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
COMPLIANCE STATEMENT
WARNING:
Before going any further, make sure that
your amplifier is compatible with your
mains electricity supply. If you have any
doubt, please seek help from a qualified
technician – your Marshall dealer can
help you with this.
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions:
MAINS INPUT & FUSE:
The specific mains input voltage
rating that your amplifier has been
manufactured for is indicated on the
rear panel of the amplifier. Your amplifier
is provided with a detachable mains
(power) lead, which should be connected
to the MAINS INPUT socket on the rear
panel of the amplifier (Rear Panel Function
#12). The correct value and type of
mains fuse is specified on the rear panel
of the amplifier.
NEVER attempt to bypass the fuse or fit
one of the incorrect value or type.
TRANSPORTING YOUR EQUIPMENT:
Please ensure that your amplifier is
switched off, unplugged from the mains
electricity supply and all removable
cables have been disconnected from
your equipment before attempting to
move it.
IMPORTANT SET UP INFORMATION:
1. When using the DSL1HR, or
the DSL1CR with an extension
speaker cabinet, you must ensure
that the speaker cabinet is of the
correct impedance rating. See
the LOUDSPEAKER guide in this
manual for specific information
regarding impedance matching (Rear
Panel Function #19).
WARNING Failure to do the above may
damage your amplifier. When connecting
a speaker cabinet make sure that you
use a proper speaker cable. Never use a
screened (shielded) guitar cable for this
purpose.
2. Ensure that the POWER switch is
set to the OFF position. (Front Panel
Function #11)
3. Connect the supplied mains (power)
lead into the MAINS INPUT on the
rear panel first and then into the
mains electricity supply. (Rear Panel
Functions #12)
4. Ensure that the volume controls on
the front panel are set to zero. (Front
panel Functions #2 & #5)

6. TONE SHIFT
Tone Shift reconfigures the preamp EQ,
adding a new dimension to tonal shaping.
9. BASS
Controls the amount of lower frequency
in your sound. Turning clockwise will
increase bottom-end making the sound
fuller.
7. TREBLE
Controls the higher frequency content
of your sound. Turning clockwise will
increase the highs making the sound
brighter and more crisp.
Tonal Note: The EQ network is dynamic and
highly interactive. Please note that because
of this, altering the setting of one control
can change the way that the other controls
behave – experiment to find your sound.
8. MIDDLE
Controls the middle register of your
sound. Turning clockwise increases
the level of mid frequencies in your
sound. Turning anti-clockwise reduces
the middle frequencies, ‘scooping’ the
sound – this is accentuated when used in
conjunction with Tone Shift (Front Panel
Function #6).
10. REVERB
Controls the overall REVERB level.
11. POWER

emulation. This ensures that your
headphone and output signal from this
socket provide the best possible tone for
practice or recording.
WARNING: When using the DSL1HR head
for ‘silent’ practice or DI recording ALWAYS
disconnect the speaker cabinet from the
amplifier’s rear panel before switching on.
NEVER unplug the speaker cable from the
speaker cabinet while it is still connected
to the amplifier rear panel. This may stress
the amplifier’s power-stage and in extreme
cases may lead to valve and/or transformer
failure.
18. LOW POWER
Use LOW POWER to reduce power level
from 1 Watt down to 0.1 Watt.
19. LOUDSPEAKER
Connect a single speaker cabinet here
for the DSL1HR head, or a optional 1 x
16OHM extension speaker cabinet for
the DSLCR combo.
WARNING: Only ever connect a single
1 x 16 Ohm speaker cabinet. Any other
speaker configuration may stress the power
amplifier section and in extreme cases may
lead to valve and/or output transformer
failure.
